Last week I blogged about Clarins Gentle Refiner Exfoliating Cream and why it is important to exfoliate. Not only is the Refiner Exfoliating Cream a great exfoliating product but it has a great number of benefits due to its Mimosa extract. Today I wanted to bring up Clarins Multi-Active Skin Renewal Serum (Youth Boost) which will make a great addition to any beauty regimen.
You could use Clarins Multi-Active Skin Renewal Serum in the morning or evening, I prefer using it in the evening (I feel pampered). I love the fragrance of this product and notice almost immediately after using it that my skin feels so much softer and my skin looks much better. So what’s in Clarins Multi-Active Skin Renewal Serum that makes your skin glow? Nopal flower extract and Phytosphingosine.
Nopal flower extract is what brings the brightness and softness to the skin. Nopal extract stimulates the skin’s natural capacity to eliminate impurities. It smooths and evens out the skin’s surface as well. Nopal flower extract also reduces small age spots and leaves your skin super soft with a healthy glow.
Now the other important ingredient in Clarins Multi-Active Skin Renewal Serum, Phytosphingosine, is similar to a molecule that is normally present in your skin. Phytosphingosine helps optimize cell renewal as well as the production of collagen. As you may already know, collagen is a protein that is found in the lower layer of your skin and is also responsible for your skin’s strength. As you age, the production of collagen decreases and as a result there is less firmness to your body tissues and as a result wrinkles and sagging of the skin can occur. This is why increasing the production of collagen is one of the essential ways to prevent wrinkles. Phytosphingosine is used in skin and hair conditioning products and has also has an anti-inflammation and anti-irritation effect. While it is known to strengthen the skin structure, it is also known to stimulate the synthesis of glucosylceramide, which helps restore damaged or aged skin structure. Phytosphingosine stimulates epidermis (outer skin layer) formation, stimulates collagen synthesis and has a soothing effect on skin inflammation caused by UV. It protects the skin’s barrier to alleviate discomfort associated with dry, aging skin.
After receiving Clarins Multi-Active Skin Renewal Serum I’ve been using it a few times a week and I have absolutely no complaint about it whatsoever. Another quality product by Clarins, this Renewal Serum makes your skin soft, appear brighter while reducing fine lines and wrinkles. After applying the serum to your skin you are not only left with better looking skin, but you are also left with the fresh fragrance that, personally, leaves me feeling like I’m being pampered/rewarded. Highly recommended!
